Video premier for the promo I made for 'Wojtek the Bear' - Made out of Maps.
I was commissioned in late 2017 by the smashing 'Wojtek the Bear' of Scottish Fiction records to use some of my 'Multiples' series for their two single sleeves and album artwork.
Below is the first single 'Made out of Maps' taken from their debut album 'A Talent for being Unreasonable.' I have also made the promo video for the single which can be viewed in the film section of the site.
The album will be out in April which will feature my photography on the cover of the vinyl record.
The lads will be touring the album all over the country very soon. x
I made a wee demo cover of a Daniel Johnston song called 'Go'.
It's very rough but fun interpretation. Recorded in a one take improv at the end of my bed. Excuse the grain. Ta x
Lots of wonderful things happening at the moment. Above are a few stills from the 'Wojtek the Bear' promo video for the first single 'Made out of Maps'. The song comes from the forthcoming album 'A Talent for being Unreasonable' which will be released on Scottish Fiction Records. The video will premiere in mid March with the album to follow in early April.
I have also been lucky enough to make all Album and single artwork for the band. The images come from my ongoing 'Multiples' project.
The record is a chunk of pure Glaswegian genius, crafted in solid gold. Keep an eye out for the release and tour dates.
New works in the works with Glasgow band 'Wojtek the Bear'. The band are releasing an album on a Scottish label early next year and have commissioned me to work in collaboration on all visual fronts.
Lots to follow, thanks
I will be making a video and images at the Glasgow Zine Fest Fundraiser at 'The Hug and Pint" on Saturday the 4th of March 2017. Tickets are available from 'The Hug and Pint' website bit.ly/2kQSfzy
Live performances from Martin John Henry (De Rosa) and L Space.
I have had the pleasure of working with Glasgow based band 'The State Broadcasters' for Olive Grove Records since the turn of the year. This work has been for the forthcoming single off their new album 'A Different Past'.
The video is being premiered by The Skinny:
The video is also viewable in the film section.
In 2016 De Rosa celebrated the tenth anniverary of the release of debut album 'Mend' with a one off performance of the album at CCA, Glasgow. The performance was accompanied by this film, directed by video artist and photographer Kris Boyle. The film was originally designed for projection and can be viewed online here for the first time.
Below are some stills from the film, the entire film can be viewed in the film section.
New collaborative work coming before the end of the year.
I was asked to make a short video by the Royal Mile Market traders to help highlight their current plight:
The video is viewable in the film section.
The Royal Mile Market Traders:
Everybody listen up! Here is a very important message regarding the future of our lovely market: a multi-million pound London company is trying to take the Tron Kirk from us to turn it into a themed gift shop.
We don't want this to happen and have contacted and spoken to our local councillors etc. to bring our case across.
Please help us out by signing this petition to further strengthen our case!
Save the Royal Mile Market!!
